Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries and Bananas

This is my favorite oatmeal recipe to make ahead or serve for company! It’s also great for the holidays, or you need a potluck breakfast dish. It’s a warm, satisfying, heart-healthy breakfast your whole family will love. It feels like you’re eating dessert, only it’s loaded with fiber. Other baked oatmeal recipes I love are Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal and Pumpkin and Banana Baked Oatmeal.

Baked Oatmeal

What I love most about this dish is that it tastes like I am having dessert, for breakfast. In fact, if I am craving a sweet treat, I usually opt for baked oatmeal. I have seen recipes that blend the oats, but to be honest I prefer keeping them in tact, I think the texture is better.

Baked Oatmeal Variations and Tips:

  • You can make this with any combination of nuts and fruit you like, the possibilities are endless!
  • Make it gluten-free by using gluten-free oats, and you can make this dairy free using any milk you would normally have on hand.
  • Swap the bananas for thin sliced apples and walnuts.
  • Swap the blueberries for strawberries or mixed berries.
  • To make ahead, you can refrigerate for 3 to 4 days.
  • Reheat leftovers in the microwave for about 60 seconds, until warmed.

Is it good to eat oatmeal everyday?

Yes, it is good to eat oatmeal every day with its nutritional profile and health benefits, including heart-health. I try to eat oatmeal at least 3 to 4 days a week. It’s also a whole grain and loaded with fiber.

Blueberries are nutritional powerhouses

Blueberries are packed with compounds that can help protect your heart, brain, eyes, and more. They also contain polyphenols, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can ward off diseases like diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

This is the BEST Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries and Bananas. It's perfect to serve guests for brunch, or make it ahead for the week for easy meal prep, as leftovers taste just as good reheated.


  • 2 medium ripe bananas, (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup honey, or maple
  • 1 cup uncooked quick or old fashion oats*
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup fat free milk, or any milk you desire

  1. Great recipe, I have had it everyday this week.

  2. Made this with steel cut oats & a few other modifications. I used a mix of blueberries, blackberries & raspberries. Used peanuts since it was the only nut I had at home. Used the same amount of steel cuts but added some extra milk (1.25-1.5 cups). Baked covered tightly with foil for 30 minutes then uncovered and baked until set and golden (around 20 minutes more). Came out perfect! 

  3. Thank you Skinnytaste for this recipe! I have your book, The Skinnytaste cookbook! Love love it!

  4. This was so yummy! I did not add the honey as I don’t like things too sweet. I also used almond milk, other than that I stuck to the recipe and this is a keeper. I love oatmeal but this tastes like a dessert, wow! This would be great for those who don’t care for oatmeal because it doesn’t have that standard “mushy oatmeal” texture. Everything blended really well. I will make this again.

  5. I completely forgot to put an egg in it (oh, crap!) It still turned out yummy! Added unsweetened coconut and a few tablespoons almond butter, plus blackberries. Will definitely make this again.

  6. I have made this three times and I love it! It is an easy recipe that you can make in advance and reheat. I am trying it today adding PB2 peanut butter powder to the oatmeal mixture and am using blackberries. It is so versatile and you can make it your own.

  7. Can a glass baking dish be used instead of a ceramic dish?

  8. Can I substitute something for bananas.

  9. This is such a great recipe! It turned out delicious, very cakey, very easy. I had overnight guests, a family of 5; since we’re also a family of 5, I was looking for something that could feed a crowd and could be prepared beforehand. It made everyone happy, adults and kids and babies alike! That’s a rare thing for sure!
    Some readers might be wondering (like I did) about the texture. I used old-fashioned oats, and I blended the banana with the liquid, as some other reviewers suggested, thus also skipping the first baking. With these alterations in mind: it was soft but cakey, firm on the outside, a bit soft inside. It’s not like some super firm cake, but also not at all like porridge/cooked oatmeal! Very important to know for those who hate porridge. My son is one of them, he objects to the slimy texture of it. This made me hesitate; but he loved this recipe, as it’s truly like a soft cake, not slimy or mushy at all. To me, it seemed absolutely perfect! If it’s gooey or mushy, as some reviewers said, then I’m pretty sure it wasn’t baked long enough. I baked it for 40 minutes, but most importantly, as Gina explained, until it’s browned on top.
    To me, getting 6 portions out of this seems very optimistic. That might work out on a buffet, if you’re serving other things. If not, I’d say it’s more like 3 people with a hearty appetite, otherwise maybe 4. For 10 people, I tripled the recipe – that worked out fine for us… but we do have some very large appetites in this household 😉
    For convenience, I baked it the evening before, as many said it’ll still be great the next day. While I can’t compare, it was indeed very good reheated.
    Personally, as I used black bananas, I didn’t add any maple or honey. For us, it was absolutely sweet enough this way.
    In case anyone is wondering about a vegan option: I used oatmilk and a chia egg, which worked perfectly.
    I loved the combination of banana, blueberry, and cinnamon. Since I didn’t have enough blueberries, I added strawberries as well. I guess it’ll be great with whatever else you have on hand! Such a versatile recipe. 
    Thank you, Gina, for this wonderful recipe! This will be our new weekend favorite, and I will definitely keep making this for overnight guests! Not only is it super delicious and healthy to boot, it’s also extremely easy and convenient. A definite winner!

  10. Can I make this without egg?

    • Absolutely! Take one tablespoon of chia seeds or ground flax (either works), mix with 4 tablespoons hot water, let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. It’ll gel, thus mimicking the egg. Then use it like an egg.

  11. this is the best oatmeal. I have made it 2 times in 3 days I made it with bananas and strawberries. YUM now have to make it with other fruit

  12. Can you bake this and then freeze it for later use? Like say sports road trips?

  13. I really don’t care for oatmeal…and this is SO good! I didn’t include any nuts bc I don’t have any right now. Other than that, I followed it exactly, using real maple syrup instead of honey and oh my!! I’m excited to eat the rest of it this week for breakfasts. Definitely going in my recipe book to make again. Thank you!!!

  14. How much apple should I substitute for the banana?

  15. This is SO YUMMY! I made the following adaptations because 1) Beyond fruit, I don’t really like sweets, especially I’m the morning, and 2) I wanted to use 0 points!
    This turned out GREAT! PERFECT! LOOOVED IT!
    -my bananas were really old and ugly so I smacked them on the bottom 
    -I used frozen blueberries and cherries in bottom cuz that’s what I had. I did NOT thaw them
    -i did NOT add any maple, honey or any other sweetener
    -I did not add nuts (they would be yummy but I was trying to use 0 points)
    -I substituted nonfat Greek yogurt for the milk (still 1 cup)
    -I used old fashioned oats (no soaking or anything other than adding them in!
    – I mixed wet and dry ingredients and spread on the baked fruit
    I put frozen blueberries and cherries and some fresh strawberries on top, cuz that’s what I had

    Turned out GREAT! It was still quite sweet so quite a treat!

    • Thank you for your comment as I was questioning whether frozen fruit could be added as that is all I have on hand. Glad it can be used!

  16. Great recipe! I added a tablespoon of ground flax seed

  17. This was ok – even with all the fruit and honey it wasn’t sweet enough. So it  tasted a little bland.

  18. I LOVE this recipe and make it frequently. Recently I’ve been trying to increase my proteins… have you every tried to add protein powder to this? Figured I’d ask before I try it and potentially ruin a good batch 🙂 

  19. The first time I made this I swapped the bananas for apples and it came out a little rubbery, but the flavor was delicious. This time I used the bananas and added almond extract and it was even more delicious. 

  20. Omg! This is fabulous. Thank you for this recipe. 

  21. Can I eliminate the maple syrup/honey to reduce the sugar content?

  22. Follow the recipe. Only thing we could taste were the oatmeal. Bland. I would suggest using an another fruit other than bananas.

    • I have made this quite a few times and find that if the bananas are not ripe or just starting to ripen, it’s not as good. I let mine get to where they are starting to turn (not quite as much as I do for banana bread, but close). The bananas are much sweeter then and it is really good! 

  23. Loved this – made some adjustments to accommodate my son’s allergies: used a flax egg, oat milk, left out the nuts.

  24. Is it ok to use frozen blueberries? I have a whole bag from blueberries picking.

  25. I didn’t have any blueberries and I have texture issues. I mashed the bananas and mixed them with most of the honey. I blended that mixture the oats and nuts before spreading in the pan. Drizzle with honey once out of the oven. It was delicious.

  26. I really wanted to like this-sounded great on a cold winter morning.  The taste was pretty good, but the texture was too gluey for me.  Same feedback from my family. I used old fashioned oats, and followed the recipe exactly.
    Love most of the Skinnytaste recipes 🙂

  27. So good!!! My toddler loved it too that’s that’s an A+ in my book!

  28. It has a good taste but I couldn’t cut mine. It was definitely just spooned out of the pan. Not sure what I did wrong

  29. Amazing. It’s so good, and so easy. Really easy to add or swap out fruit as well. I’ll try apple next time.

  30. Amazing!

  31. Great recipe! I am more of a savory breakfast person but surprisingly, this was not too sweet! I might add a little protein powder as another comment suggested. Can’t wait to have the leftovers during the week.

  32. A hit! I mixed everything together in one bowl, wet & dry ingredients, and baked it 45. minutes! My house smelled delicious while it was baking!

  33. Can I leave out or replace the egg with something else?

  34. Loved, love, love this I’ve made it several times and highly recommend 

  35. what’s the best way to re-heat the leftovers?

  36. have you ever used frozen bananas?

  37. I just made this today and it’s so yummy! I added some protein powder to the milk mixture as I like extra protein in the morning to keep me full until lunch. I also had to cook it in my ninja foodie as my range is out of commission until later this week. I cooked it at 375° and it only needed about 15 minutes until it was cooked through. Will definitely be making this frequently! So delicious!

    • Did you increase the amount of milk when you added protein powder? I actually just posted that question as I am looking to do the same. I wasn’t sure if the protein powder would thicken it too much. 

  38. Can this be frozen after it is baked?

  39. Can this be frozen?

  40. Can this be doubled for a 9X13 to feed a crowd?

    • I did it in a 9 x 13 and it worked great.  I increased the banana bake time to 22 minutes and the final bake time to 40-45 minutes.  

      Thought this was really tasty!

  41. So amazing 👏

  42. Part of my Christmas morning brunch this year–everyone loved it! I prepped the dry ingredients the night before (used old fashioned rolled oats for those wondering if they work–they do!) so all I had to do Christmas morning was slice the bananas and throw the liquid ingredients in a measuring cup. When it was time to add the oatmeal and liquid ingredients I just combined them prior to pouring as others suggested and it works perfectly. I can’t wait to experiment with other fruits this coming year. Such a great recipe–thank you Gina!

  43. OMG! This was DELICIOUS!!!!! I made per the recipe using almond milk. It’s only four WW personal points for me per serving (seven for two). I enjoyed all of the honey, it wasn’t too sweet, it was perfect as written. I wouldn’t change a thing.

  44. Have you tried old fashioned rolled oats in this recipe?

  45. Looking for diet grab and run breakfast item.

  46. Very good breakfast or brunch item! Love the banana blueberry combo. 

  47. Really enjoyed this recipe! Added a few extra berries I needed to use up. This will be a perfect breakfast for my high school daughter to heat up before her 7 am class! She loved it too. Thank you!

  48. Just commenting to say I’ve made this a number of times and it is great. Fresh out of the oven especially. 

  49. There’s a tree nut allergy in our house. I wonder what we could replace the walnuts with? Or maybe just leave out the walnuts?? 

  50. Can a metal square pan be used instead of ceramic? I also have corning ware but those pieces are not really 8 x 8 so the depth might be off. Thank you–Jeanne

  51. This sounds delicious. Will try. Thank you!

  52. Hi, can you substitute the milk with Greek yogurt instead? This looks so good!

  53. Can this recipe be frozen to make it last longer? 

  54. Has anyone tried baking and freezing? Curious how it turned out. Thanks!

  55. Thank you, Gina for so many tasty and healthy recipes! I have been using Coaches Steel Cut Oats exclusively since discovering them at Costco. Will steel cut oats work in your recipe, and if so, any adjustments you recommend? Thank you!

  56. I have recommended this recipe to so many people! The basic recipe is adaptable to many fruit choices. I no longer even add the honey and don’t miss it as the fruit is sweet and vanilla enhances the natural sweetness. Currently eating this with diced apples. Leaving out the honey also reduced my WW personal points.

  57. Can you make this without the bananas?

  58. I mix the wet Ingredients and dry ingredients then add them together and throw it in the pan and turns out perfect every time. Our morning favourite ! 

  59. Followed this exactly other than using old-fashioned oats instead of instant. Came out like mush on the bottom with the bananas. Need to cook longer?
    Or just mixed up better? How do you keep the bananas from being mush?
    It tastes okay but the texture is a big no as is. Can’t figure out how everyone got theirs crispy?

  60. Can steel cut oats be used in this?  I absolutely love the recipe but would like to use healthier steel cut oats.  

  61. I could not subscribe.. keeps stating not valid.

  62. Followed the recipe exactly and this is the best oatmeal! Almost a crisp. Made it in advance and refrigerated. Then I warmed a portion in the air fryer for just a bit more cripness and it’s so good with coffee for breakfast. Wish my mom had known about this all those mornings when we were kids. Five stars for sure. One possible tweak would be to add just a bit of lemon juice.

  63. Can I use almond milk?

  64. Will this recipe work well with regular oats? Thank you! 

  65. My family really enjoys this recipe. We actually use Old Fashion Oats, then honey and Almond milk are our choices. I made it with sliced strawberries this past week for the first time, it was devine! 😋🫐🍓🍌

  66. Can you make this recipe into muffins?

    • Good recipe. I used half maple syrup half honey and I mined all the wet and dry Ingredients together in 1 bowl added the other blueberries and poured it over the baked bananas. Worked out well!

  67. I made this for after our 25K trail race. It was perfect! Everyone loved it.  Totally hit all the spots.  Thank you! 

  68. I love, love, love this recipe! The last time I made it, instead of banana’s I used a can of no sugar added peaches. My new favorite breakfast! Love the peaches in it! Taste like a dessert!

  69. I have been making this recipe for years, it’s one of my favorite special breakfasts. After trying it as written to start, I now do the following: mix the wet and dry ingredients, no nuts (I’m just not a nut person) and leave out the vanilla (I thought it made everything taste too much like vanilla which wasn’t what I wanted). I also like to add raspberries on top. I’ll make this even without banana, so I just skip the whole first part and then do just blueberries and raspberries on top, I love it. It’s great reheated too. Having tried other baked oatmeal recipes, the ratios here for the oatmeal part are perfect for me so I keep coming back.

  70. Can you convert the cooking times for baking this recipe using ramakins in an air fryer?
    It would be so nice to have individual portions and the ability to use the air fryer!

  71. Loved this recipe except for the soggy bottom. used frozen blueberries. Wondering how I can fix this or what I did wrong?

  72. How would I adjust this to use with old fashioned oats? 

  73. This was delicious! I will definitely be making this again.

  74. I’m using old fashioned oats this time, after using the quick oats called-for in the recipe my first time. I loved the dish, but would have liked just a little more density. You don’t have to be a baker to make this dish. It accepts all sorts of substitutions of fruits, nuts, cinnamon amount, liquid choices like almond milk (I wonder how it would taste with goat milk).

  75. Unfortunately this was a miss for me. I cooked it for 45 minutes and it was still a mushy mess. Glad so many others liked it but it didn’t work out for me. 

  76. So I just plugged this into my WW app. I am on blue plan..came to 9 points not 6. Not sure why there’s such a hugh discrepancy. Oatmeal in very good.

  77. Delicious and so easy to make! Perfect for on-the-go weekday breakfasts.

  78. This will be the second time I make this recipe, LOVE IT! I used maple syrup (only 1/4 cup), doubled the recipe for meal prep and quick, delicious and healthy breakfast from the freezer. Thank you!!

  79. Does this recipe require quick cooking oats or can you use regular. I normally don’t buy the quick cooking oats. I would live to try this. Looks delish. Let me know please.

  80. If there are leftovers, should it be refrigerated?

  81. This was absolutely amazing. Mine came out and tasted like delicious most blueberry muffins. I didn’t use the nuts and only used half the honey but it was still outstanding. This is only the second oatmeal bake I have made but its officially the one to beat. Thank you!!!

  82. The hype is real! This was delicious, warm and satisfying. Used frozen wild blueberries (did not thaw first) and sugar-free maple syrup to sweeten. Great use for the aging bananas in your life. Thanks Gina!

  83. Do you think I can make with the single packets of plain oatmeal?? 

  84. I absolutely love this. Subbed Maple Grove sugar free maple syrup for the honey and a serving comes out to 1 point on purple.
    It’s also amazing as written in the recipe!

  85. This is really good. I needed to use some Gala apples and over ripe bananas.  I’ve been looking for something I can grab and go as I’m very bad about taking time to eat in the morning.  It was very good warm yesterday when I made it and this morning I tried it cold and decided it didn’t need to be heated. 

  86. I made this last weekend and loved it! Tried it again this weekend but substituted an apple (chopped) for the banana. Both methods were delicious! Biggest problem is keeping the husband from eating all the leftovers the same day! 🙂

  87. Love, Love this recipe, you can even cut recipe in half if you live alone and put it in a loaf pan. This is such a healthy recipe. I don’t use all the sweetener I just drizzle some real maple syrup or real honey, it is all you need as the banana is sweet. YUMMY!!!

  88. Sorry, I disagree with the step to layer dry then wet.  Why not stir both together?  I had dry pockets of oatmeal.  

  89. I just made this and it’s amazing! I forgot to buy nuts, so those weren’t included and I sprinkled a tiny bit of brown sugar on top when it was done- so yummy! And it seems pretty healthy!

  90. I just made this recipe and it is so delicious! I will be making this weekly. Thanks for your recipes.

  91. Excellent! Will be making this often. Great for meal prep!

  92. I always just combine the wet and dry ingredients then pour over the bananas and fruit.  Makes it way more evenly distributed.  I also switch up the fruit based on what frozen pack I have at the time.  Frozen cherries and blackberries is an excellent combo! 

  93. Wonderful! This plus all the recipes I have tried from this site are very very good. 

  94. I’m a single gal and love some of your lunch and dinner recipes! Usually, I lean towards the dinner options you provide and can figure out if it can be stored and will reheat easily. But this one… can it be frozen and reheated? Does it have to be stored in the fridge and eaten right away? I’ve not ever made this type of breakfast dish before and I’d really like to give it a go. Thanks for the help!

    • Haha! Never mind! I went back and read the entire post and answered my own question! I should probably do that going forward! lol

  95. To reduce the SP, I leave out the honey and nuts. I LOAD it up with fruit and make sure that my bananas are sweet. I only had old fashioned oats so I soaked them first. It is a soft dish, not firm like a granola bar.

    I do just mix it all together and bake it.

    I am wondering if you took cooked oatmeal, added the eggs, fruit, cinnamon/vanilla and baking powder then baked, would it be a 0 SP dish on purple?

    I do enjoy this for breakfast or a snack later in the day!

  96. This is INCREDIBLE!!!!!! best oatmeal bake I’ve ever made! The quick oats make it so mach better!

  97. This was fantastic. I made it with peach slices in place of the bananas, and added a couple more peach slices on top for good measure. The oat texture was quite fluffy, bursting with blueberries with a nice crunch from the walnuts.

  98. 8 year old called this the best breakfast ever. 😀

  99. Another delicious recipe from Skinny Taste! I took a few shortcuts with the recipe and it worked for me.

    – My bananas were sweet enough so I didn’t add the honey to save on SP.
    – I had old fashioned oats instead of quick oats so I soaked them in the liquid mixture for about 15 minutes while the bananas roasted.

    The oatmeal bakes up very thin and it wasn’t filling enough for me so I ended up cutting it into 5 pieces and ate one each day this week. It does reheat very well.

  100. Best banana oatmeal blueberry recipe I’ve used! I’ve tried many different recipes usually they mix all ingredients together but tends to be good right after baking and dry the next day. This turned out super moist with the right amount of sweetness. Didn’t have that many blue berries so chopped up some strawberries for first part with banana then topped with blue berries. Also used chopped cashews. turned out great! Highly recommend 

  101. This oatmeal is DELICIOUS! I used old fashioned oats and added 2 Tbs chia seeds. This is definitely a repeater recipe! YUM!

  102. Delicious! I swapped the honey for maple syrup and left out the nuts so I could share with my 10-month old. I also added a big scoop of non-fat Greek yogurt for some extra protein. Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow! 

  103. I only have a 9×9 non stick metal pan. Will that work??

  104. Mushy. Would not make this again.

  105. Hi there! This recipe looks delish!! Myvquestion is…if I used frozen blueberries or strawberries, should I thaw them first?

    Can’t wait to try this!

  106. Nice addCaition to our breakfast options. Better with a yogurt topping.

  107. Can this be made with frozen mixed berries? Trying to stay away from the grocery store!

  108. your recipes are great, but way too high in sugar, for desserts and breakfast.  How is this skinny?

    • The sugar is coming from the fruit which is natural sugar.

      • The sugar is coming from the honey (as well as some from fruit). Personally, I will use much less honey.

    • You can make w/o honey as the bananas are sweet. I personally just drizzle w/real honey or real maple syrup. 

    • Compared to another similar baked oatmeal recipe that had 449 calories per serving, this is skinny. This has less sugar, less fat (the other recipe used 3 T coconut oil or melted buter and 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup), and half the calories. It may not be your version of skinny, but for someone trying to break a waffle or donut habit, this is way better. Her recipes are “skinny” compared to a regular recipe for a similar meal. If you don’t like it, don’t make it. I lost 94 pounds using her recipes, so they can’t be too bad.

      • That’s wonderful on your weight loss! (Hope u don’t mind me commenting) I’m looking to lose weight, live alone and would love some suggestions on your fav skinny taste recipes (or others) if you don’t mind?  Thanks!

  109. I love this baked oatmeal recipe. I have all the ingredients except quick oats. Just have old fashion oats. Can you substitute?  And how?  Trying to stay out of stores and most stores are out of oatmeal anyway. I do have bananas and blueberries. Thank you. 

    • I wish someone would answer about using rolled oats rather than quick. I had all the ingredients ready to go this morning, then re-read the recipe which calls for quick oats. Darn!

      • I use regular oats all the time. I mix them with the milk and let it sit while the bananas cook for the bottom layer. 

  110. I took out the honey and used 3 Tbsp of sugar free Toroni almond syrup.  I swapped 30 cal almond milk for the ff milk.  This reduces the points on purple to just the walnuts.  I love this and don’t think I will ever have to throw away another banana because it’s too ripe!💜 whole tray is 8 pots. 

  111. This was so easy to make and delicious! It was a great change for breakfast. Very filling too.

  112. So yummy!!

    • My kids LOVED this.
      I subbed thin sliced apples for the bananas and real maple syrup for the honey.
      I wish I would have baked it longer as it seemed a bit soggy to me. When I went back and looked I saw that it said 30 *or until golden* and I just went with the 30 minutes. I also accidentally mixed the oatmeal with the milk mixture and then poured it over, not sure if that would make a difference in texture.
      Next time I may leave out the maple syrup/honey and just drizzle it over before eating.

  113. Any suggestions on replacing egg?  I usually use apple sauce but probably won’t work in this case 

    • Flax egg. I tablespoon of flax meal with little bit of water and mix it, let sit for a min and you’re good to go.

  114. Can this be made with old fashioned or steel cut oats?

  115. This was really delicious. I would make it again. 

  116. I made these yesterday! Very yummy. I omitted the nuts and only used 2 tbsp on honey. Recipe builder shows it at 2 blue points for 1/6 of the recipe.

  117. If you omit the nuts, how many points on ww blue plan? Planning to make tomorrow am. Looks delish!!!!!

  118. I’m so pleased with this recipe. Perfect combination of berries, oats, nuts, with a hint of banana. As the recipe mentions, you could add different berries and switch out the pecans for walnuts or almonds. I would definitely make this as a regular dish for breakfast or brunch! Nicely done!

  119. I LOVED this recipe, although when I put the info in, it pointed out as 9 points on green?  What did I do wrong?

    • You have to put it in the recipe builder, not just type in the nutritional facts. That being said, I did that and calculated 5 on Green.

  120. Soooo good. Only substitution I made was to use almonds instead of walnuts and used a bit more than the recipe called for.  Will definitely make this again. 

  121. I made a mistake while making this (didn’t read the directions first!) and added everything together instead of pouring wet ingredients over top. I purposely also mashed the banana into the oats since I’m not a huge banana lover, but I do enjoy it in baked goods for the sweetness. I do love vanilla and cinnamon so I added extra. It was AMAZING, and I’m not a big banana or oatmeal person!! This will probably be in my weekly rotation every week it’s so delicious! I could eat the entire pan!! Thank you Gina!! 

  122. new here.. if its 6 points on green.. is that the hole dish or each serving.. ? also how does one enter this on the app?

  123. Absolutely delicious, especially with a couple tablespoons of vanilla yogurt on top.  

    Next time I will use a bit less banana. My family is all weird about mushy textures. We found it a bit too soft on the bottom. We will definitely be making this again. 

    • I made it without the nuts. When I entered the recipe without nuts  into the WW recipe builder it was 4 points when the recipe serves 8 and 5 points when it serves 6.  

  124. Made the recipe as stated minus the walnuts. When I entered the nutrition information in WW, came up as 9 points on the green plan.

  125. I have gout and need to have low sodium, what can I take out of this recipe to lower it please?

    • I have to follow a low sodium diet also and 77mgs is low. (I’m supposed to stay under 1200 mg) There are only two salt sources in the recipe. Baking soda and salt, just don’t add either. That really all you can do to modify it. but it could affect the flavor or texture since baking soda is a leavening agent.

      • I also eat very low sodium, I leave out salt and do use the baking soda you can always cut the baking soda amount in half.

  126. Yes, curious about points on purple plan?

  127. Can I use apples at the bottom instead of bananas? If so what would be the best apple to use?

  128. Could I use an egg substitute (egg replacer like Ener-G) 

  129. This was really good. I made it the way the recipe states the first time and tried it the way some other reviewers advised the second time with mixing it all together and not baking the bananas first. We liked it better with the bananas baked first. Either way it was delicious and it keeps you feeling satisfied. 

  130. Yummmm I want to eat this everyday! 

  131. Made this today and it was amazing, I did use frozen blueberries, and mine set up fine, cooked 35 versus the 30 minutes. Only change I made was using maple syrup instead of the honey.

  132. I decided I Need to prep healthy breakfast because I found myself grabbing bagels more often than not. I LOVE this! It’s delicious and so convenient, I’ve got it all prepped in the fridge ready to grab on my way to work in the morning! My husband had a slice for dessert last night! This is going to be my go to breakfast! Can’t wait To try different fruit variations. I’m a banana lover, so that will be a constant!

  133. Can I use regular  old fashioned oats instead of quick oats?

  134. This was so easy and came out perfect.

  135. The entire family loved this.  We ate it warm over greek yogurt for a protein boost.  We all agreed we’d leave out the nuts next time.  Used bananas, strawberries and blueberries.

  136. Delicious!! So easy and a hit for everyone in my family. I used almond milk, worked great. I also substituted maple syrup  for honey so my baby under 1 could also have some (no honey until over 1!). I’ll make this all the time!

  137. Can you substitute the milk with anything else?

  138. This was delicious! Tasted like dessert. We put some plain yogurt on it, too. 

  139. This looks great but I really do NOT like bananas.   Do you think I could use any other fruit… nectarines or would that be too watery?   Thanks 

  140. Can I use a metal pan instead of ceramic? Will it make a difference, if so how?

  141. One of my favorites!! I use pecans because I’m not a huge fan of walnuts and added some Cardamom for a little added pizzazz!

  142. Absolutely delicious. Followed the recipe to a T and it was perfect. Trying to get new breakfast ideas for my kids before school and my 3 picky eaters loved this and added bonus- the house smells amazing. The best part was after my son finished he said, “I’d eat this again!” Coming from him who is just not a breakfast fan, it’s a big win. Thank you for providing such healthy, delicious, easy to follow recipes. 

  143. My husband asked me to make this again, for dessert!

  144. I left this out overnight, is that okay?

  145. Do you recover with foil after you pour in the oat/ milk mixtures? Can’t wait to eat it!! 

  146. Could you use granola instead of oatmeal? I know the calories would go up, but not a big fan of oatmeal!

  147. I love this recipe for meal prep for breakfasts or lunches.  It freezes well too.  The second time I made it I mashed the bananas and mixed in with the wet ingredients then mixed wet and dry ingredients together in a bowl.  I skipped the step of baking the bananas.  I liked it even better this time as I wasn’t a big fan of the consistency or appearance of the mushy bananas on the bottom.  Otherwise made just as directed.  So good!  

  148. Unfortunately my was a mushy mess after following all directions. Also tried adding 10 minutes to the bake time.I used frozen blueberries, and am wondering if I should have used less than the indicated fresh amount?

    • I always find it best to defrost and dry out frozen blueberries before using them in this recipe, pancakes, breads, etc. Hope that helps!

  149. Your recipe looks really good, can you chill them and will they keep for a few days in the fridge?

  150. Top of the list recipe for me! Simple to make and simply delicious. I used sugar free honey, I’m always watching my sugar intake. Will make this again and again. 

  151. I would love to see a Instant Pot version of this!

  152. Delicious !  I added Lily’s chips  and sugar free honey and turn out great !  Thank you for another healthy & tasteful recipe 

  153. I made this for Mother’s Day. Everyone loved it. I baked it for a total of 40 min and tripled the nuts – which I’m sure killed the WW points allotment 🙂 but everyone loved it! This is a keeper! Thank you!

  154. Would I be able to substitute Splenda for the honey to lower the points?

  155. Meh, this was very very bland.  A LOT more salt would help it.  Next time I would also double the walnuts, there wasn’t quite enough to have any sort of satisfying crunch. 

    Also the top says 35 min cook time, however there is a 15 min bake of the bananas, and then 30 min bake of the oatmeal (which actually takes more like 40 min to set).  So it is at least 45 min to bake. 

    Also, what is the purpose of spreading the oats then pouring the milk mixture over?  Why not combine them first to make sure they are well-mixed, then spread it all over the bananas – way easier. 

    Also it took 3 bananas to cover the bottom with measuring the thickness to half an inch in an 8×8 pan.  It seemed very thick.  I think 1/4 inch would be better.  Also – why not incorporate the bananas into the bake?

  156. THIS IS AMAZING!!! Seriously SOOOO good! I’d never know it wasn’t loaded with refined sugar and fat! Even my non-healthy eating husband loved it (MAJOR WIN!). I drizzled a tiny bit of almond butter on my portion, and that was great too – but also 100% delicious by itself. Thanks for another winner! 

  157. Can I use 1 minute oats?

  158. I baked it for 30 minutes and then another 10 minutes and it still did not set.   I am hoping it sets while it cools.

  159. This is amazing! As a dietitian I am always looking for healthy recipes for myself and my clients that are quick and easy- so no excuses for not eating breakfast! ! Love this!

  160. I always make this with apples. I also use a flax egg which works great for a vegan option.

    • did you cook your apples in advance as for the bananas ? how thick was your apples ? and did you bake it for the same time ?
      thank in Advance

  161. Can you leave the bananas out of the bottom?

  162. Hello,
    if i am using a gluten, will it affects the calories?
    Thank you

  163. Can I freeze individual pieces of this? I love this oatmeal and all your recipes Gina!

    • It freezers beautifully! I freeze portions and then when I want some I take a frozen block out of the freezer and microwave it for 3 minutes and it is PERFECT, just like the day I made it!

  164. I sprinkled brown sugar to the top of it. Very good

  165. My daughters boyfriend is vegan what can I replace for the egg?

  166. This was so delicious and easy! I used frozen blueberries since that’s what i had & vanilla almond milk and it turned out great. I probably baked it for an extra 5ish min to firm it up a bit more too. Definitely going in the breakfast rotation. Delicious!

  167. Can I use steel cut oats?

  168. Can this recipe be prepped the night before, refrigerated and baked the next morning?

  169. Can frozen berries be used?

  170. De-Lish! Made this last night to have for breakfast today. So so good! I am not always a fan of oatmeal, but this was delicious. Very easy to make and made our house smell amazing. I reheated in the microwave for 1 minute and it turned out almost as good as fresh from the oven.

  171. Made this last week and added peaches since I didn’t have enough blueberries and I think I ate it every morning. Making another batch right now, but with cinnamon apples instead of berries. Next week will be peaches. Good stuff!

  172. Can I make this with strawberries and blueberries? Would I still use cinnamon? 

  173. I just made this for a mid-morning snack. . Not only does my house smell amazing, it’s so delicious! I used Vanilla Flavored Flax milk in it too. DELISH! and incredibly easy to make. I highly recommend. I am going to make it next time, in ramekins for dessert options. Curious to see if I can refrigerate and re-heat. Will advise!

  174. I made this today!  What a wonderful, healthy, low calorie treat!

  175. Can I use Original Oats instead of Instant or quick?

  176. Oh my Goodness I think I just died and went to heaven. This is the best oatmeal I have ever tried. I used to make Amish Cranberry Walnut baked oatmeal a lot but. this has this best

  177. Made this just now and it turned out great. Easy, healthy, definitely will make again in the future. 

  178. This was easy peasy and very satisfying. I  think I will eat the remainder as dessert with a little cool whip!

  179. This recipe is a keeper! Cannot wait to make it again with different fruits; love that it is interchangeable! By the way, I used coconut milk as that is what I had on hand and it was delicious! Thank you!

  180. So delicious and so easy to make!! 

  181. OMG was this ever delicious! I used maple syrup instead of honey as that’s what I had on hand. So glad I froze those blueberries! Also, I toasted the pecans first. Loved it!

  182. I made this successfully with quick steel cut oats (Trader Joe’s), blueberries, blackberries and bananas. I’m not going to lie, I was very worried after pouring the milk mixture over the oats. It looked nothing like Gina’s photos. There was so much milk that the berries were floating in it. BUT it turned out delicious. I don’t believe this recipe is supposed to have a bar/cookie texture (like some commenters were expecting); mine certainly doesn’t. But it’s true to its name – baked oatmeal. Would definitely make again! Yum!

  183. This is absolutely wonderful. I will definitely make this again!

  184. absolutely loved this and ate it for days right out of the fridge…….

  185. I made the pumpkin version a month ago. My three year old asked me for oatmeal ‘cake’ yesterday, so we are trying this version this morning. Thank you so much for breakfast ‘cake’!

  186. What do I need to change if I want to use a glass dish?

  187. Oh boy is this delicious! I can’t wait to eat these for breakfast all week.

  188. Absolutely wonderful! I left out the nuts to save a few calories and used old fashioned oats (not quick) plus frozen blueberries. Turned out perfectly with those slight variations and my house smells like a bakery.

    For those who are disappointed, baked oatmeal is not equal to an oatmeal cookie. Imagine the softness of an oatmeal with a smooth bread pudding like consistency in the middle, then golden brown oats that are a little more firm on top. Will make again perhaps even Christmas morning.

  189. I made this today as part of my weekly meal prep. I wasn’t thrilled with the consistency of it, I was thinking it would turn out more like a “breakfast bar”, but it was mushy.  My hubby and I taste tested it, we agreed the flavor was good but it was too mushy and we threw it away.

  190. Wow! I first tried the pumpkin and was not impressed probably because as you cannot get canned pumpkin in Mexico I used just pureed one and it probably was lacking sugar. This however. WOW! I used instant oats since quick oats again do not exist in this country and frozen blueberries since regular ones are very expensive here and I figured since they were going to be baked it would not matter much. I used sweetened almond vanilla milk and added a bit of stevia, used maple instead of honey and just one tablespoon to cut down the total carbs. Made them in individual ramekins. Literally delicious, we have our first cold front in Mexico City and this hit the spot, so fluffy and satifying, basically like the best muffin I have ever had but without any added fat! Thank you, you made a Mexican very happy. Making this every week.

  191. Worked a treat using frozen wild blueberries. I also substituted maple syrup – had no honey around at the time. And I used almond milk. Great!

  192. The best comfort food! Great fall food. Make me smile food!

  193. It was delicious! Used a honey crisp apple instead of a banana. I felt like I was eating dessert for breakfast! 

  194. The recipe builder in the WW app or website will tell you what the points are if you make changes. It’s really easy to use.

    I reduced the honey by 1/2, no nuts and cut into 8 because I’m horrible at division and have my own point value for these bars, which are delicious!

    My only other change is that I do think they are mushy so I’m going to heat it in a dry skillet tomorrow, to firm up the bottom a bit.

  195. This was great! I used 365 (Whole Foods brand) Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (not quick cooking) since they were one of the few brands that tested zero for traces of weed killer! They still baked no problem. I also used half the amount of honey figuring those who like it sweeter could just drizzle a little more on top if they liked.  Personally I could use more cinnamon but that’s just me ?

  196. What is the consistency of this?   I’m not a fan of regular oatmeal. 

    • This had consistency of a bread pudding to me. Kinda custardy. It was not muffin type or dry if that makes any sense. Definitely need a fork or spoon to eat

  197. Can u add protein powder? Or would that mess with consistency too much

  198. Delicious!! I just used blueberries and cut amount of honey in half. 

  199. Can you double this but still skew it in the 8×8 pan? Mine was so thin!

  200. This is absolutely amazing. I ate it as dessert warmed up wirh fat free Cool whip on top.

  201. Tried the basic recipe and love it! Will try other combinations too.

  202. Can this be frozen ahead of time? If so, does it change the cooking times!? Thanks!

  203. Excellent and easy—perfect for using over ripe bananas.  Made it for our easy Sunday morning.  

  204. I made this with strawberries, bananas, & blueberries & we loved it! I really didn’t measure the fruit, cinnamon, & walnuts either…very easy & adapable?

  205. Hi what is the importance of mixing the egg and milk separately and pouring it on top of the oatmea? Can’t I just mix everything together what what happened?

  206. Hi. I have to make this without nuts. My daughter is allergic to nuts. How many points would this recipe be without the nuts? Thank you. Looks yummy. Like all your recipes…

  207. When I put the nutrition info into the WW app it comes up to 9 points per serving! A big difference from the listed points here.

    • Hi Sally! You MUST use recipe builder when getting points. The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting 0 points foods such as eggs, chicken, fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, that is why.

      The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”)

  208. Substituted shredded unsweetened coconut for the walnuts and coconut extract for the vanilla extract just because that is what we had on hand. A lovely, relatively healthy dish.

  209. Loved it and so did my company

  210. Delicious. A Saturday morning favorite

  212. Delicious! I made this with Almond milk, cut the honey in half, and added a Tbsp of ground flax. This will definitely be on my go to list!

  213. Can I use a Pyrex dish verses ceramic?

  214. I don’t like nuts so I’m wondering if the freestyle points values changes if I leave the nuts out? Thanks!

  215. I made this today for Easter brunch. I substituted raspberries instead of blueberries. Did anyone bake it longer than 30 minutes? Mine was mushy in the middle so I baked it 10 minutes longer.  I will definitely make this again. 

  216. Oh my! I just made this Baked Oats this morning and it sure is yummy. I followed the recipe to a T and it turned out delicious. I like how it’s not too sweet. It can be eaten as a breakfast, or you can divide the portions even smaller for 2 or 3-point snacks or desserts. My kids loved this, too;one had a bit of cream poured on top. I’m looking forward to trying this recipe again with maple syrup and other fruit. 

  217. Can’t wait to make for Easter brunch with my family this year! Quick question: can it be made the night before? If so, should I make the dish completely and then reheat in the oven? Thanks!

  218. Can I make this this night before and then put in the oven the next day to warm through?

  219. I have made this twice. Once as written…GREAT.. Then once with changes – still GREAT (sugar free maple syrup instead of honey and no nuts. also just mashed the bananas into the milk mixture and added right to the oats…mixed and poured. MUCH easier than the banana pre-baking) This is a very, very good recipe. I could eat it for breakfast OR dessert. Thanks!

  220. I am obsessed with this! I make it every week! Thank you!

  221. Oh my gosh!  I  am teleworking today and made this as a treat!  I am having this with some Fage.  It is heavenly! 

  222. double recipe

  223. Can we use regular old fashion oats with this recipe?

  224. Pingback: Baked Oatmeal with Bananas and Blueberries | A Tasty Life

  225. When do I add the rest of the blueberries?

  226. Can steel cut oats be used instead of quick oats?

  227. Could I replace the honey with Stevia?  I’m a diabetic and want to try this but I have to watch my sugars.

    • I’m wondering the same due to a diabetic husband. I guess I could use the sugar free pancake syrup for the honey. Gina  what are your thoughts on making this more diabetic friendly?

    • I’m willing to bet you could try any sweetener. Or, try the recipe without any honey/sweetener at all and sprinkle whatever you want on top of your portion just before eating. 

  228. This recipe is so tasty!!  We made it last night and heated it up this morning….

  229. I made this recipe today just as is, it’s very good. I like that it’s not sweet tasting. I’m looking forward to having some in the morning with my coffee. Thanks for the recipe!

  230. Just plain awesome! Used mixed frozen berries, apples and walnuts. Very satisfying! All Gina’s recipes are fabulous 🙂

  231. this was excellent, easy to make and good for a few mornings on the go too

  232. A simple substitute for an egg is to stir a teaspoon of chia seeds into about 1/4 cup of water. Wait a few minutes and it will become thickened to the consistency of an egg. This binds pretty well.

  233. I can’t have eggs bc of lent period.. what can I use instead? Thanks 

  234. Any suggestions for how to replace the egg? We have an egg allergy.

  235. I was wondering if I make this with apples instead of bananas can it be frozen after? I am alone this would be great if I could…just not sure

  236. I made this last night but couldn’t wait for breakfast to try a bite.  It was delicious and my house smelled so good when I opened the oven.  It was just as good this morning reheated in the microwave.

  238. This is SO good!

  239. Can you omit the nuts?  How many points without the nuts?

    • I would like to omit the pecans too. How many points would it be?

    • Just look at your WW points to see what 1/4 cup nuts is worth and subtract that from your recipe. 1/4 pecans is 6 points. So if the whole recipe is 6 servings at 6 pts each, then not using pecans reduces each portion to 5 pts each. Just do the math!

  240. Have you ever used molasses instead of

  241. What is the serving size for the points listed ? Thanks 🙂

  242. I didn’t have any bananas so I replaced them with peaches. So so so good!

  243. Pingback: Be good to your Heart this February! – Napa Healthy Bodies Coalition

  244. I made this on Sunday for breakfast and it is wonderful.! I pre-portioned the leftovers for this week and they reheat beautifully. Mine needed a few minutes longer in the oven and then I let it sit for 5 minutes before serving. Definitely a keeper. and 6 SP’s well spent.

  245. So yummy! Not a banana lover and I really liked this recipe. The recipe suggests that you use really ripe bananas….which mines were not super ripe so they didn’t have an overwhelming banana taste. My sister made it with ripe bananas and I enjoyed it despite the strong warm bananas, though I will always use under ripe bananas going forward.

  246. Can you freeze this?

  247. I haven’t made baked oatmeal before so I don’t know what it’s supposed to taste like. But I was surprised at the consistency of this- it was definitely a more mushy than I expected. I think I had been expecting something closer to the consistency of he breakfast cookies. 
    I love so many skinnytaste recipes but not  sure I’ll be making this one again.

  249. Love love this recipe! I make this early in my week and have it for the next 5 days. It keeps well. Going to experiment with different fruit next time. I like to put a little plain non-fat greek yogurt on top. 

  250. Can you make this with quick cooking steel cut oats?

  251. This was a disappointment and waste of good info ingredients

  252. There are only two of us.  How long will it be ok in refrigerator?

  253. I made this recipe this morning just as it’s directed and it’s delicious! I added it into my food tracker on the WW app and it changed the SP to 9 instead of 6 per serving. It changed when I added in the sugars. Please advise!

  254. Call me crazy, but this is awesome with a pinch of cayenne.

  256. How many freestyle points would this recipe have?

  257. So I made this in an 8×8 dish. It came out crispy on top but mushy on bottom. Is this normal due to the bananas? Or is my oven not cooking evenly?

  258. Just made this – didn’t have bananas on hand so I used a Granny Smith apple. DELICIOUS!!  Made exactly as written although I did serve with a spoonful of Greek yogurt. Will definitely keep this in the breakfast rotation!

  259. Excellent breakfast! I can’t believe there is no sugar in it as it has a lovely sweet taste! I’m not a big banana fan, but they are delicious in here. Thank you!

    • I think that because of the honey, it makes it sweet, but would prefer less grams of sugar. I may omit the honey and see how it tastes   Maybe a sprinkle of brown sugar as it’s served will suffice. Thoughts, Gina?? 

      • I make a similar version of this in muffin form, and I put 3-4 pureed dates in as my sweetener (in addition to the bananas). _I_ think it tastes lovely but it is definitely less sweet than most breakfast oatmeal/muffins. I tried it with no dates, just bananas and it was too plain tasting for me. I’ve been slowly reducing my added sugars for a while, so I’m used to it. I just did a quick calculation with 4 dates and it looks like about 8 grams of added sugar per muffin – all from fruit.

    • Just be careful….there are 23 grams of sugar in this recipe. Honey has a very high sugar content.

  260. Could I use almond milk?

  261. I made this for breakfast this week with my modifications (low FODMAP, no dairy, gluten free, etc) and it was DELICIOUS. I subbed pure maple syrup for honey/agave because I can’t have those and it was so incredibly delicious! I’m making a second tray tonight so I have it for the next few days! Great morning breakfast for me before running!

    • Made this tonight for a quick and healthy breakfast option throughout the week for my kids…hope it makes its until the morning!! Made a few adjustments to make GF and used an almond/coconut milk blend, Gina and the skinnytaste recipes have helped fall back in love cooking again.

  262. This is my new go to for breakfast meal prep. Thanks for all of your wonderful recipes. You’ve really helped make my healthy eating and weight loss journey easy and delicious! 

  263. Delicious! Served Christmas morning. Everyone loved it. I added a dollop of plain Greek yogurt on top.

  268. What could I sub for eggs? I am feeding a crowd next weekend and several are vegan. This might be a good option for them for breakfast. 

    • There’s so many egg subtitiutes. I use a flax or chia seed “egg.” I’ve also used applesauce as well as water, baking soda and vegetable oil. All work great! 

  269. Gina, can I make this with old fashioned oats instead of quick cooking?

  270. What if I have regular rolled oats instead of quick oats??

  271. I just made this baked oatmeal with blueberries. I loved it and my husband did as well. Oh so good!

  272. Does it need to be refrigerated after wards for storage? 

  273. Have you made this with frozen blueberries? 

  274. Hi, this recipe looks great! Just wondering if you could use water instead of milk? 

  275. This is so delicious – I’m making it for the second time in 2 days!  Thanks for another keeper, Gina!!!

  276. I make this a lot and really love it! I do sub out the bananas for apples as I am not a big fan of warm mushy bananas. Everything else is perfect just the way it is!

  277. Do u cover it the second time in the oven?

  278. I don’t do bananas AT ALL.  What other foods would be good to substitute in its place.  I love blueberries and would like to try this out.  Please help.

  279. Love this recipe. Curious why skinny taste will not allow me to pin a specific recipe from facebook? When I try to pin this ( and lots of other recipes) it just takes me to “follow skinny”. I already do, but I would really like to tag the specific recipe… very frustrating!!!

This is amazing.  I made it this morning with a couple of minor revisions since I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand.  I used frozen blueberries instead of fresh and I used maple syrup instead of honey.  I cut the maple syrup down to 1/8 of a cup.  I also added sliced almonds instead of the walnuts or pecans.  

    It was so delicious.  It smells wonderful while it is baking.  Honestly, it was hard to keep myself from eating the entire pan!

    • Hi DH, did you thaw the frozen berries first? I don’t have fresh berries so I wasn’t sure. I may also cut down the maple syrup/agave/honey.

  292. My daughter has a peanut and tree nut allergy so how can I substitute the nut ingredient? Thanks

  293. So, it took just 4-1/2 years to find and make this, but what a find! It tastes as wonderful as my house smelled while baking it, and I “sampled” my way right through 1-1/2 servings before forcing myself to stop. My bananas were so ripe that I didn’t need to cook them down first. Just layered everything together, put all the walnuts on top (so they would be nice and toasty) and placed it in the oven. Took just a little over 30 minutes to arrive at YUM!

  294. Could you assemble this ahead of time and do the last baking step later?
    It looks delicious!

  295. Where has this recipe been all my life?? Made it last night and reheated it this morning.. WOW! Absolutely delicious.  Will be making this again soon!

  296. I just baked this but I tweaked it to add more fiber and calcium:  Step 1 is the same.  In Step 2 I used quick cook STEEL oats and pumpkin  pie spice, with pecans.  Step 3: Biggie:  Instead of milk I used sweetened light vanilla soy milk–1 1/4 cups to compensate for the denser oates.  NO honey, NO extract.  This can also be done with sweetened vanilla almond milk, etc.  Same cooking time–it was perfect.  6 oz container of blueberries is perfect.  I’m 64 and need the higher fiber and calcium.

  297. It would be nice if you had a print mode.  Maybe I missed it but couldn’t find it. Thank you

  298. It says that the recipe is under 30 min, but it takes 45 min just bake everything not even counting the prep time !?

  299. Great recipe! I used Quaker old fashioned oats (which are 5 mins vs quick oats which take 1). I didn’t have any vanilla so substituted 1/2 tsp almond extract. I also didn’t have any nuts so sprinkled some granola on top. Served with fat free half and half. We devoured it!

  300. I make this a couple times a month but I use apples instead of banana since I eat it throughout the week. this recipe is delicious! Thank you!!!!

  301. I can’t eat oats. Could I substitute quinoa or something else for the oats?

  302. I have tried this and it was very good as have been all your recipes I have tried. Thinking of leaving out the honey, thinking of putting in extra eggs or oatmeal, any suggestions. I think the 1/4c honey is 16points, so wanting to spend my points more wisely.  Any suggestions. Thank you.

  303. I come up with a total of 9 SP when I enter the nutritional info in to my WW calculator. Help?

    • I also got 9 SP.  Would love to figure out why! I even omitted the honey to be cautious, but curious how Gina for only 6. Such a yummy breakfast!

  304. My grocery store was out of blueberries, so the first time, I tried it with strawberries. I sliced the strawberries on the bottom layer and cut them into chunks to sprinkle on top and I used honey. Today I made it with blueberries and agave nectar. I like the classic strawberry-banana combo better, but prefer agave nectar, as I found the taste of the honey overwhelming. I love the combination of apricots and cherries, so I am going to try that when those fruits are in season. This is a really great and filling breakfast, love the simplicity of the recipe.

  305. I absolutely love this recipe!!! I have made a few different fruit combos and enjoyed them all. Gina, I want to enter this as one of my favorite foods on my WW app but when I enter the nutrition values, it comes up as 9 points? Any ideas? I've checked and rechecked to make sure I entered the same values asabove. Are any of them maybe a misprint? I kind of hope so 🙂

  306. Respectfully, I see there are 22.8g of sugar per serving. Is that high if I'm trying to keep my weight down?

  307. How would this adapt to steel cut oats rather than quick cooking? I am preparing to move and need to use up the steel cut.

  308. I love this recipe but when I type it in to my WW calandar it comes up 9 points for 6 servings. :(. Still make it, just cut it smaller. This is on the brand new points plan.

  309. Just put 6 ramekins of this recipe in the oven…I usually don't change anything when I make a new recipe for the first time, but I used sliced almonds because I didn't have the nut in the recipe. I'm very excited to taste this!!!

  310. this was delicious! held up well the next day, too!

  311. Do you cover it again once you put it back into the oven?

  312. I made this today, with a few modifications because I'm watching my carb and sugar intake. I cut the honey in half and only used one banana. It was delicious just like everything else I've tried from this blog!! 🙂

  313. Hi, i'm new here… and my first time doing WW ( i just had my second baby 6 months ago) im excited about this blog, but i am confused about the serving size stuff… how does that work? i dont want to eat more than i supposed to and think its only a few points when its several!! Please help!

  314. If we are only supposed to put positive comments about this recipe on here. How are people gonna know how bad it is? It was awful, soggy and rubbery

  315. This was absolutely disgusting. Do not waste your time money or effort. What part was not soggy had the consistency of a rubber ball. I followed the directions to a tee. I think your friends posted all this BS about how good they are cause they suck.

  316. Great breakfast recipe! It's both healthy and delicious

  317. I love this so much. Even though the blueberries burst and kind of turned it gray. It tastes amazing as both breakfast and served with ice cream as dessert. Thank you again for another winning recipe!

  318. Can this or any of your other baked oatmeal recipes be prepared the night before and baked the following AM ???thanks

  319. This is a great and versitale recipe! I've made this in a number of different versions, for example: with and without blueberries, with apples, with other berries, with old fashioned rolled oats, with and without nuts, with coconut flakes… the list goes on. The leftovers are also very good cold, or you could just make it the evening before if you prefer it cold. Highly recommended! 🙂

  320. Made this for a work potluck breakfast this morning and it was a huge hit. Used blackberries instead of blueberries and it turned out delicious.

  321. How many calories (approximately) would this have if I substituted milk for almond milk?

  322. Found out about your website on WW boards. Made this today and it was very good. Your website looks great and the photographs make the food look very appetizing. I will be trying other recipes in the near future.

  323. Your website looks great. I want to make 'oatmeal' more interesting, and this is surely one of the BEST ways to go – not a blueberry fan, but I say YAY to bananas 😉

    Thank you so much


  324. Heya! For some reason, when I make this, the bananas always separate from the bottom. 🙁 Am I doing something wrong ? Should I make smaller slices? Should I put oatmeal below it?

  325. OH MY GOODNESS!!! SO AMAZINGLY GOOD! I just baked it and had a piece… this was supposed to be for breakfast at work all week… but I just ate about a third of the pan for supper!

  326. Made this recipe for breakfast this morning. It did not set quite as well as it should have, but it didn't matter to me. It was delicious! Perhaps it was a bit soft because I used Old Fashioned Oats instead of Quick Oats because that is what I had on hand. It was great topped with Non Fat Plain Greek Yogurt! This will be a regular breakfast for me.

  327. Absolutely wonderful I spray whipping cream on top. Heat it up the next day ,it is even good cold Yummy

  328. I was nervous about trying this.. but I baked it last night cut a piece and brought it to work this morning… Popped it in the microwave for 70 seconds and it was delicious. In case anyone needs to know.. it's fine without the nuts (my husband has diverticulitis so I don't cook with them ever) … and now my co-workers want me to bring them a piece tomorrow morning 🙂

  329. From what I have heard (from many visits to Canyon Ranch and listening to Dr. Oz) quick oats are pretty unhealthy… Could you use steel cut oats?

  330. My son has used all my quick cooking oats in his energy/protein shakes, and I am left with steel cut oats. I'm in the middle of the recipe now. Are there any additional steps I should take or adjustments when using the slow cooking oats? And I LOVE your site and recipes. So glad I stumbled upon it on Facebook today!

  331. My daughter and I love banana bread w/chocolate chips. I'm thinking of skipping the blueberries and adding a handful of dark chocolate chunks to the mix…

  332. This was very very good. I was out of blueberries, so I substituted frozen dark sweet cherries. I also used a combo of walnuts and pecans. Will definitely make this again!

  333. I made this two days in a row with different fruit. So yummy! I added shredded coconut. Love this recipe!

  334. I made this with blackberries since my grocery was out of blueberries and it was delicious, this is definitely going on regular rotation!

  335. I made this the other day, LOVE it!! Thank you for the wonderful recipe, I reviewed it on my blog 🙂

  336. Made this today, Good stuff! Can't wait to try it reheated.

  337. I'm going to try this. I will substitute milk with unsweetended vanilla almond milk though and it will be delicious!

  338. I mixed 1 whole ripe banana in the milk mixture to give the oatmeal a banana flavor, and wow, it came out delicious! Hands down, the best baked oatmeal I've ever had!

  339. This is yummy. Just made it and will definitely be making this again. I omitted the nuts and used unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of regular milk, as that is what I had on hand. I calculated the calories as 165 per serving with the way I made it. I will definitely be trying this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a dessert without the guilt. I want to play around with other fruit combinations as well. Yum!

  340. Best baked oatmeal ever! I made this using old fashioned oats so I added 2 or 3 Tbsp extra milk (almond milk) just in case the OF oats absorbed more liquid than the quick oats. Unfortunately, I was only able to salvage a small serving before my 2 very hungry 4 year olds devoured the entire batch. I will definitely make this again- thank you so much for all the great recipes.
